Ilmenite is one of the most important ores of the metal titanium in the world. It is mined as an important industrial mineral in several deposits throughout the world, and many of them are in placer sands. Ilmenite is very similar in structure to Hematite, and is essentially the same as Hematite with roughly half the iron replaced with titanium. Ilmenite is a weakly magnetic titanium-iron oxide mineral which is iron-black or steel-gray. Most ilmenite is mined for titanium dioxide production.Ilmenite is a titanium bearing mineral that, directly or indirectly, supplies in excess of 90% of the feedstock to the large titanium dioxide pigment industry as well as to the very significant and growing titanium metal market and some smaller industrial applications.
In the ilmenite raw ore crushing process, we need to use the crusher. Shanghai shibang company can provide different types of crusher for choosing which refers to the crushing machine used for dealing with large ilmenite stones. Like jaw crusher, impact crusher and cone crusher. You can choose one or two crushers to compose of your ilmenite mining production line.
PE series jaw crusher is usually used as primary crusher in quarry production lines, mineral ore crushing plants and powder making plants. It manufactured with world-class manufacturing technology and advanced digital parts processing equipment to ensure the precision of the machine parts. Choosing the best production material, greatly enhance the compressive resistance, wear resistance and greatly prolong the service life of the machine.
PF series impact crusher can be used to deal with materials whose size below 500mm and whose compression strength less than 360Mpa. It has high grinding efficiency, the rotational inertia of the rotor has a large and low energy consumption; The top of the machine is equipped with discharging mouth adjusting device which can be simple and quick adjustment counterattack plate and plate hammer gap and control the size of discharge; Product shape is a cube, no tension fracture. Grain shape is good. According to the standard of all kinds of sand and gravel aggregate level, it is suitable. Also it has simple structure and convenient in maintenance.
Apart from crushing equipment, we also need conveyorbeltinilmenitemining processing which will be used in composing of conveying system. Conveyor belt for ilmenite mining is available with either rollersor a solid surface to support the carrying belt. When ilmenite stones fall down on the conveyor, the roller under the belt will drive the belt come forward. In this way, conveyor belt can transfer materials continuously and evenly.
Most ilmenite ore are poor ilmenite ore, so the ore processing must be carried out. Ilmenite ore beneficiation methods currently used for the mechanical selection (including washing, screening, re-election, high intensity magnetic separation and flotation), as well as fire enrichment, chemical processing method. During the whole production line, electric separation, gravity separation and strong magnetic separation, flotation separation and roasting separation are all the necessary steps.
The ilmenite mining process includes gravity separation, magnetic separation and electric separation. Firstly, the raw materials should be extracted from the mine. After this step, the concentrated mines which contain the gravity materials will get. You can get the ilmenite with the help of middle strong magnetic separation. The strong magnetic will recover the monazite and the shaking table is used to remove the gangue. The electric separation is mainly used for separating the rutile with zircon.
